Subject[RFC V2 0/3] arm_pmu: acpi: variant support and QCOM Falkor extensions
This series is a complete re-design of V1 of the QCOM Falkor extensions [1],
it introduces a probe table based on the HID of a device nested under the CPU
device to allow variant detection and arm_pmu customization.

The first patch adds an additional section at the end of each ACPI probe table.
This allows probe tables to be sentinel-delimited and better accommodate some
APIs that require such tables.

The second patch adds the PMUv3 ACPI probe table and plumbing to allow drivers
to plug into the ACPI PMUv3 probe sequence.

The third patch adds the QCOM Falkor extensions using the new probe table.

If this found to be a reasonable extension approach other patches will be
added to the series to build on the base QCOM extensions.


Changes since V1:
- Redesign as a separate module by adding variant detection support.

Agustin Vega-Frias (3):
ACPI: add support for sentinel-delimited probe tables
arm_pmu: acpi: add support for CPU PMU variant detection
perf: qcom: Add Falkor CPU PMU IMPLEMENTATION DEFINED event support
